Paper Abstract

Vegetation remote-sensing is a quite new field for lidar investigations and only few results were shown in litterature. The potential of differential-reflectance and fluorescence lidars in the detection of some plant-characteristics was analyzed with a particular attention to water-stress, senescence and diseas. Both systems showed a good potential in vegetation remote-sensing: differential-reflectance lidars seem particularly interesting for senescence and disease monitoring, while fluorescence lidars seem particularly suitable for water-stress monitoring.
